Hello my Lovelies! The sun and the heat are finally pointing their nose in Switzerland and I truly could not be happier. Thus, since summer sounds to be just around the corner, I wanted to share with you my Pre-Summer 2017 Essentials.
“7 Summer Essentials you should own in 2017”
1) A Personalized Floppy Sun Hat
I first saw this hat on dreamy Islands pictures shared on Instagram and I just found this floppy sun hat SO cool. As I do quickly get obsessed when I like something I see, I always instantly google it. Thus, I found that the brand which designs these hats is called The White Elephant Designs but sad news, they do not seem to ship their products to Europe. #supersadface But luckily, I have a bunch of friends in the US, so will most likely have them shipping it over to me. To those of you who have been now reading my blog for a while and/or following me on Instagram (@Cocorebelista), you know that I really love stylish and cool customized pieces for my wardrobe collection. Thus, this cute Floppy Sun Hat is definitely part of my Pre-Summer 2017 Essentials and while I won’t be wearing it, I will use it as a decoration on my frames wall!
2) A Floral Printed Summer Dress
Although I am a blue jeans, white shirt and leather jacket kind of girl, I really can’t resist to a nice floral dress especially during summer days. I have been looking for an orange floral printed dress for a while now, so I was so happy when I saw this cute dress from Esprit at El Corte Ingles in Barcelona last week. I just fell in love with the color and the beautiful details at the back. I think the main reason why I am so obsessed with this dress is because I can already picture the outfits I will create with it! I mean how nice is it going to look with an oversized denim jacket and cute open ankle boots? I already got two similar floral dresses but in dark blue and yellow, so I am definitely adding this cute orange one to my bloomy wardrobe!
3) A Salty Hair Spray
Last summer I wrote a post on how to create your own beach wavy hair spray. Now, even though it is cheaper to do it ourselves, I heard SO many great things about Bumble and Bumble Surf Infusion from Sephora that I really want to give it a try. Who knows, maybe one of my next post will be a review of it… and hopefully a positive one! Haha
4) An Embellished Oversized Denim Festival Jacket
If you know me well, you know that I LOVE leather jackets so much I collect them. However, lately I am feeling guilty since I have started to grow my Denim jacket collections too! I already have an embroider one, a ripped one and an oversized one with a cool sentence written at the back… but, to perfectly complete my little denim jacket family, I got a big crush on this Embellished Oversized Denim Festival Jacket from Boohoo. I think it will look so so nice if I style it together with the orange floral dress and black open ankle boots from Esprit together with the Gucci Belt! Now I just wished Coachella could take place again in June! Hehe
5) A Pair of Open Ankle Boots
Rules are made to be broken, otherwise it would not be fun. Thus, it is not because the days are getting warmer that we should only wear sandals and flip flops. Now I know, it is not really sexy to walk around barefoot with super white feet but I am not telling you to tan with boots… I don’t know about you girls but I am just obsessed with open ankle boots. I think it looks so nice when wearing them with a cute dress and cutting the look with a leather or denim jacket. I personally really like these beauties from Esprit because they look a bit edgy but are still very feminine, so they are definitely a MUST of my Pre-Summer 2017 Essentials!
6) A Handmade Beach Bag
What would summer be without a nice handmade beach bag? I always wanted to have one but only got my first a few weeks ago. Why? Because I live in Switzerland and it’s not like we have a nice sandy beach with an infinite ocean here. We just have lakes and too much rain. But hey, since I travel back to Barcelona at least twice a month, I definitely felt like it was time to own a stylish handmade beach bag. The one I got is from My Maracuja but I cannot seem to find a pics of it online so I am sharing with you this cute pineapple beach bag from Lily and Rose Swimwear which I hope will be mine soon as well!
7) A GG Belt
For way too many years, I used to feel like wearing a belt did not make much sense until I realized how it actually does style outfits in a really cool way. I am already the lucky owner of the small GG Gucci belt but ever since I got it, I feel like getting the bigger size too. So it naturally also is one of my Pre-Summer 2017 Essentials.
That’s it for today. Thanks for reading and I hope you girls enjoyed this Pre-Summer 2017 Essentials post!
